Youth Water Polo

Last year Jersey Wahoos launched a new aquatic program in an effort to introduce the sport of Water Polo to the region’s young athletes. Water Polo is a team sport that has the excitement and qualities of soccer, hockey and basketball but it is played in a swimming pool.

On 9/10/17 the club hosted its inaugural Water Polo Kickoff Clinic with the help of the American Water Polo Association. Over the next 6 months the participant athletes {ages of 8 and 14} trained each week to learn the fundamental concepts, rules, and skills necessary to play this exciting sport. The hard work paid off and Jersey Wahoos proudly became South Jersey's FIRST aquatic club to have an age-group water polo team participate in the American Water Polo Association's Mainline League during the 2018 spring season.

The club’s water polo program has training groups for beginners and for experienced players. Our coaching staff has years of experience at the age group, high school, collegiate, national & international levels and offers excellent instruction for playing one of the country’s fastest growing sports.

Besides being a really fun sport, water polo can compliment competitive swimmers by offering many opportunities and benefits, including:

1. Learning new swimming strokes and aquatic skills for a sport that is played in many colleges around the country
2. Increasing fitness, strength, endurance & stamina
3. Building friendships while sharing the values of teamwork & sportsmanship
4. Training in a safe, respectful and positive environment
